Way of Lifer RSS

If you’ve paid attention to anything I’ve said or done in the last 2.5 years since starting WxTxLx, you will know this: far from being a fashion business, or a funny t-shirt shop, this was always supposed to be a ‘thing of ours’. My excuse to burn screens and handprint t-shirts for the chosen few out there, people whose personal and/or collective life philosophy matched mine at some level. Again, not for the glory or the money, just for the chance to meet and work with real LIFERS, and hopefully form long lasting friendships. Sure, let’s not be hypocrites here...

So them nice fellows at Signature Brew put together this amazing old school-style punk diy 'zine, and yours truly got invited around for a chat and a taste of the brand new Banfi beer straight out of the pipes. This is what happened next - for a hard copy of the zine get in touch with John at the brewery he might be able to hook you up. Enjoy. (I was WAY too lazy to type the interview, so just sticking the images here.)

So I came across these guys a bit by luck when I was looking for like-minded individuals to peddle my shit to. And lucky it was.

Instead, I turned to Facebook and found this amazing group called Skaters Over 50  and everybody in there was absolutely legendary, even after I mentioned being an ex bike messenger and keen cyclist. So, I got all the advice I needed re decks and trucks and wheels and was able to bring it well within my wife's budget (she was buying it for me, capisce?) I have since taken...

extreme lifestyle, lifer, podcast, running, stuff you should know, trypod -

I hated running for pretty much all of my life until about 3 years ago. One day I decided I was going to run, and I've been doing it ever since. Mostly 5 or 10k runs, and at a grandmother's pace, but running nonetheless. As much as I love my music, I couldn't get the right soundtrack . Either music was too distracting, or the beat wasn't quite right, but I just couldn't do it.  I had heard of podcasts before, so I thought I'd give them a go - and it was like crystal meth for the ears. No,...
